London: England captain Nasser Hussain spoke out against a plan to reduce Test matches to four days on Sunday. Australian Cricket Board chief executive Malcolm Speed, soon to take up a similar post with the International Cricket Council, is in favour of such a scheme. But Hussain told 'The Sunday Telegraph', "I think the Test cricket we've been playing for the last few years has been a fine shop-window for the game. People are too drugged up on quick-fix cricket so I don't think it's one of the best ideas I've heard. "If Test cricket has survived this long there can't be much wrong with it and if it ain't broken don't fix it. Even if a game does end in a bore draw there's likely to have been some pretty exciting stuff along the way."
